Final Week - October Challenge

October Barbell Challenge

Final Week Workout Schedule & Routines

The final week is here, congrats on making it to week #5! Below is the workout schedule and routines for the final week of October. Rock out these workouts and then give yourself a nice rest day on November 1st because you earned it!

Take a look back at what you did this month. Ask yourself what worked, and what didn't work. Was there a specific workout routine that you really liked? Any specific exercise move that really boosted your progress towards your goals? How were your eating habits this month? Do you feel like you lost the excess fat you were looking to shed off this month? If you did, WAY TO GO! That means that your diet was on point this month. If you feel like you didn't shed that excess weight, than it is your diet that is holding you back from achieving your weight loss goals. You are either eating too much or too little, too much sugar/fat/carbs or too little protein & carbs. You need protein and carbs to fuel your workouts. But, at the same time, you need to eat in moderation and make sure you aren't eating too much fat and carbs (especially saturated fats and processed carbs and sugar). Take this free Seven Day Detox & the Clean Eating Plan to get a jump start on revamping your diet so you can shed the excess weight!

I have included three template workouts below: one for the upper body, one for the lower body and one template for a cardio workout. You can use these templates to create your own workouts. This week I want you to choose your favorite upper body exercise moves and plug them into the upper body workout routine template below. Also choose your favorite lower body exercise moves and plug them into the lower body template below. Do the same for the cardio workout routine too. And if you don't have the time to figure out your fav moves, just do the workout routines as shown below. The goal here, is to start having fun with your workouts by adding your fav moves to the routine you do.

Final Week Workout Schedule:

Monday {October 27th}: Upper Body Workout

Tuesday {October 28th}: Lower Body Workout

Wednesday {October 29th}: Cardio Workout

Thursday {October 30th}: Upper Body Workout

Friday {October 31st}: Lower Body Workout

Saturday-Sunday REST, you made it through the 31 Day October Barbell Challenge!

Important Notes: Make sure you plug in compound exercises versus isolation exercise into the workout routine templates below. Compound exercises are multi-joint movements that work several muscles or muscle groups at one time. Isolation exercises only work one muscle or muscle group and one joint at one time. An example of a compound exercise would be a squat, lunge, bench press, chin up. An example of an isolation exercise would be a tricep kickback, bicep curl, or quad extension (usually using the commercial weight machines at the gym). Including one-two isolation moves in your workouts is okay, but just make sure a majority of the exercise moves in your workout routine are compound exercises.
